Church Cottage


House. Mid C17, refurbished in early C18. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone
rubble or brick stacks topped with C20 brick; slate roof (probably thatch
2-room plan house facing north-west with central through-passage also containing the
stair. Kitchen to left (north-east) with end stack and parlour to right with
projecting end stack. 2 storeys. Secondary outshot to rear of kitchen.
Symmetrical 3-window front of probably C19 3-light flat-faced mullion casements with
glazing bars. Central doorway contains an early C18 6-panel door (the top panel now
glazed) in a contemporary bead-moulded frame. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: both rooms have original soffit-chamfered and scroll-stopped crossbeams.
The kitchen fireplace is blocked and, according to the occupier, its oak lintel was
cut through circa 1980. The parlour was refurbished in early C18. The fireplace
has a brick segmental arch over and curving brick pentan. There is a 2-fielded panel
door from the passage to the parlour and the flat back faces of each panel have
charmingly romantic C19 paintings; an Alpine landscape above and bullrushes with
flowers below. The roof is inaccessible but the bases of the truss principals show
suggesting that the original A-frame trusses survive.
